August 21, 2016 – White-throated Robin, Irania, White-throated Irania, Persian Robin, or White-necked Nightingale (Irania gutturalis)

These birds are found in southwest Asia, wintering in northeast and east Africa. They eat mostly invertebrates, such as beetles, along with some fruit in autumn. Breeding on rocky slopes, they use dry grasses, leaves, and twigs to build their nests in tree crevices, stumps, or low in trees and shrubs. Females lay four or five eggs, which hatch in around two weeks.
